ZANU PF Youth League has endorsed the party’s Politburo resolution to suspend its Youth League Deputy Secretary, Lewis Matutu and Youth League National Political Commissar, Godfrey Tsenengamu, after the duo was accused of gross indiscipline and failing to follow party procedure.

The duo were suspended from their party positions for a period of one year and ordered to attend a 3 month ideological course at the Herbert Chitepo School of Ideology after they held a press conference in which they accused busisnesmen, Kudakwashe Tagwirei, Billy Rautenburg and Tafadzwa Musarara of being corrupt.

Speaking at a press conference at the party Headquarters after the Youth League National Executive Council Meeting, Acting Deputy Secretary, Tendai Chirau declared that as the Youth League they had endorsed the politburo decision.

“As Youth League we support the resolution of the Politburo to suspend Matutu and Tsenengamu.  As youths we believe in following correct party procedure when addressing grievances.

“Indiscipline will cause chaos. We need order within ZANU PF, that is why His Excellency created ZACC so that you present your issues and ensure you have evidence. But that is not to say we condone corruption, no,” he said.

Also addressing the media, the ZANU PF Youth League spokesperson and Secretary for Information and Publicity, Yeukai Simbanegavi briefed the media on the resolutions made in the meeting, outlining the projections and goals of the youth league in 2020.

“As Youth League we agreed that in 2020 we will focus on land. As young people we believe that we should also have access to land. We will be engaging the relevant Ministry and we will also be looking at youth empowerment through activities such as mining.

“We will also be launching Operation Chikorokoza Chapera in which we want to help and encourage young people to be compliant and get necessary documentation in order to operate as small scale miners and avoid persecution,” she revealed.
